Real Talk by: StephO

This Trailer of the Week is the Sonic Lost World reveal trailer! It looks like we’ll be seeing the return of some familiar faces in addition to meeting some new ones. The same goes for game play, which appears to be a combination of the traditional Sonic spin-run-jump moves plus some new sky dive and free run moves that take advantage of the 3D levels. I am definitely excited to see more! Sonic Lost World will be available for WiiU and Nintendo 3DS later this year.

BONUS TRAILER: ARMIKROG.
